|Gameplay tips and progression||
I'll start from after you beat the phalanx, presuming you picked up most equipment, and got destroyed by the vanguard. The first thing to do, is level your vitality up as much as possible, as this can ensure you survive pretty much everything. After you defeat the phalanx, your first objective is 6000 souls, as that claymore is gonna be your best friend, so by the time you get your first dragonstone it should be a +3. After you have the claymore, the lighter armour you picked up from the chains in 1-1 should be your battle dress, or as much to ensure you can still roll and run fast. The claymore being two-handed, when using the R1 attack, should decimate crowds, and with the thiefs ring on, those pecky wolves. With a turpentine buff, the towerknight is nothing, even for a begginer, if they can grasp the concept of rolling away from attacks. After he's down, use all your souls on vitality, going through 2-1 should be next.
